  • Descrição


    We are a German couple, 56 and 61 years old, with a dog and a cat.
    We have been living here since 2017 near Sandviken in the Gävle area on the edge of the Färnebofjärden nature park on the Nedre Dalälven and after several moves across Europe we finally feel at home.
    Our home consists of 5 hectares of land with 2 houses, a barn, an earth cellar and a pool as well as our own spring with forest.
    The nearest neighbours are about 900 m away. Other neighbours such as foxes have their den less than 100 m in sight of us. Deer and elk visit us regularly as well as hares, swans and cranes. We live very close to nature and pay attention to our "neighbours".
    Thomas works as a truck driver and I am mostly at home.
    We have many ideas and some have already been implemented, such as: the repair of the pool, for which a pool deck for sunbathing and barbecuing is now in the pipeline.
    Furthermore, we want to build a greenhouse, for which the foundation is already done.
    Our garden is enclosed with a branch fence for everything that crawls and flies - it also needs filling up from time to time.
    We have built 3 beds in the garden so far, which are also being worked on.
    Our next big projection now will be a solar farm, for which we will build the racks for the solar cells ourselves. This is almost complete now but the rest will be installed soon and a battery pack will be set up in spring.
    Our guest house is already finished - and a studio to go with it - a small flat to live in while you are here - with its own bathroom and kitchen.
    What we expect:
    5 hours a day working on our projects.

    DIY and construction work


    Craft work

    Our biggest project in 2024 will be the finalization of the pool surrounding after much has been destroyed during a fire of the sauna house.
    Then a greenhouse where the ground is already done - for the rest we want to use recycled material and natural stone. So if you have experience with timber construction and walls that would be an advantage.
    Then we also want to build a terrace in front of our house.
    The garden should be sown and maintained.
    On the front part of the plot we want to build a flower garden
    and much more.....
    We have more ideas than we can implement. But with your help we are sure that we can do it - step by step!

    We have a beautiful bathing spot nearby in Färnebofjärden Nature Park. There are many activities on offer in the nature park such as: fishing, guided tours or kayaking.
